Re: From Rome Italy

engine oil is diluted so needs more frequent oil changes. 240 bhp Diesel engine introduced MY18 (Autumn 2017 in UK), assume has same oil dilution issue as the 180. I think that's slightly misleading. The 2.2 engine requires an oil change every 12000 miles/12 months. Although the 2.0 engine is sold ...

Re: Coolant level red warning - repeated issue

They need to check it with a cold engine and an unpressurised cooling system. This will determine if the problem lies with the sensor (most likely) or if there is a leak or not.

Re: Tip for finding rattles

My wife could never understand why I was so angry with myself at the time...."They're just a pair of speakers.....why don't you pop down to Comet and buy some more?" was about the depth of...

Icelandic Members?

Hello all, I have just returned from a short break to Reykjavic where the DS is quite a popular vehicle. I appreciate that a lot of the launch videos were shot there, so maybe it's left a legacy with the locals, as I saw a fair few whilst out there. I was wondering if we had any members on this site...

Re: Rear Disc replacement -- Brake maintenance Mode

As above. Dealers are allowed only so much warranty work each month - if they exceed their quota (which is usually the case) they will try and wriggle out of it. This has happened to me this Autumn (same dealer as -9), and was only resolved after a heated discussion with the head of business there. ...

Re: Parking Sensor Stress

What happens when you press the icon 2nd from far left to activate sensors manually? Does the triangle light up orange? If not, and manual override isn't working, then I'm afraid it's a dealer visit.
